Why Give?

Atlanta Youth Academy exists to provide an excellent Christ-centered education in low income, urban communities. As a result of this focus, our financial model is the inverse of most independent schools.






We must raise approximately 85% of our operating budget to bridge the gap between what our tuition-paying families invest and the actual cost of educating our students. Of our operating budget of approximately $2.5M, about $2.2M must come from philanthropic sources: our Annual Fund, our Benefit Auction, and scholarship funds provided through the GA Student Scholarship Organizations (GOAL and Arete). We hope that you will choose to partner with us in one or all of these areas as we transform lives...one student at a time.

AYA has never before been so Embraced & Embracing as we were in 2020. Thanks be to God!
